I gotta recruit more people into the team, but the applications I've got recently are hilariously... ridiculous. One butchered my name, the other used fail Japanese, one called us "Team GYMINI" >__>... waiting for the day we get "Team Jimini Cricket". .-.

Dreams do come true! 8D

oh, indeed or else poor Jokul will get overworked or whipped by a bullwhip...applications wow! It's like a job interview. How can people butcher your name?! I mean I did mess up Alavon's name but your name...how?! Aw, failed Japanese...at least they tried I guess. Team Gymini? not the best way to try to get a position on your team...haha, team Jimini cricket...I can see that coming with all those people applying.

It is a job interview. =x You're applying for a position with a team. You wouldn't just be working with me, you'd be working with a whole network of people, so acting as professional as possible is a great way to set yourself away from the other people... or I can just be really picky since I -do- have to hire people in real life.

Trust me, I've seen some really bad applications. One had super horrible grammar, another was far too personal (kept calling me "Yuki-chan"), and well... Jokulhaup's application was exactly what I was looking for. Fun, excited and well written. I really just gotta get along with the applicant for them to get the position they're asking for. And if they don't have the skills, they just get to sit back and do read-overs and just chill with moi.

xYiki, Yugi-chan, Teem gem, and one that totally didn't make sense... xYjki of Team GEMINAI.

AAHHHYYEAAAA!!! ;D

Oh sounds quite tough...*gulp* that is true, it is a team effort to produce those awesome fanfics. Wow, so they have to be professional...well at least it isn't face to face interviews...picky? Well you're only doing your job and finding the best people for your team. Hm...you sound like a teacher grading over essays...:P Must be tough...oh congrats to Jokulhaup, he must be really talented. Sitting back and chilling with you sounds quite fun as well. Wow, those are some messed up spelling and names...ahyea sounds so asian...haha never really got the suffix thing. so Fate is less personal than Fate-chan?

Fate-san, Fate-chan, Fate <-- Formal, Personal, Informal/Casual. I'd prefer getting called but just "Yuki" since "x" is reserved only for TruePrime. Though I have had plenty of people call me "Yuki-sama" which is really way over the top. ._.;

Well I like to have good first impressions of people. I think that is something very important. In real life, if I have an interview, I expect the person to dress very nice with well groomed hair. Sending in an online app. for TG with sloppy grammar, poorly worded sentences, and other uncouth things would simply just make me cringe and look to the next.

I did marry a teacher... <__< So I guess it's similar, but I do get paid to hire people.

Of course chilling with me is fun. 8D I ain't that old, so we're probably close to the same age... I might be a bit older than you though. :B

From what I know, going without a suffix can either show strong closeness to a person, or strong dislike/disrespect.

On another note, working with Team Jebadiah Gemini
is indeed fun.

I don't think I've ever referred to Yuki directly, but I'd probably go with Boss-ma'am, which sounds similar to Boss-man - the title I use for my superiors.

Yes my lord and master *grovel* :P Yes, first impressions are very important since once you have that impression, it takes ages before that impression is changed. Hm...that explains things...marrying a teacher...let me guess...she teaches literature? No you aren't old...only like 2 years I think and yes chilling with you and chatting has been a lot of fun.

First impressions are usually everything to me. I've got really good intuition, so if I don't like a person, I'll just say it straight up... or give them a chance. >__> But normally, I'm right.

Actually, no. Wifey-chan was a dance teacher who was studying to be a history/biology/gym teacher. .-. A very scary combination. If you got a question wrong, she'd probably force you to run a lap while reciting the four chambers of the heart and the different parts of the lungs... <__< She made me do that when a she helped me study for exams.

Well I'm glad you like talking to me. A lot of people find me frightening. I don't know why... <__< I actually had a long time fan who was in the hospital. She gave me her phone number and I called her to say that I hoped she'd get better. So when I called, she just kinda stuttered and blubbered about, and the first thing she says is: "HI, Yuki-shama!"

"Yuki-shama"... LOL!

It was fun though~ just wished people would just come up to me and say hi instead of just shyly "*waving*"... <_< I don't bite much.

The "much" indicates that you do, and thus I am filled with a raw, unmitigated terror that cries out for me to flee in order to preserve my current state of existence.

But no, I don't understand how you give off a frightening impression; I've met people that are far more abrasive and disliked. >.>

Oh, a good intuition...hm I trust you since you are a manager with lots of experience and you picked Jokulhaup as well who turned out a good editor and friend. Oh dance teacher studying to be a history/bio/PE...it is indeed a scary combo. *shudder* Wow, that is intense! But after her "study session", helping you with your exam, I'm guessing you did well? It's fun talking to you but sometimes it is intimating talking to someone you look up to like yourself. Haha, if I met you in real person I probably stutter and babble as well since I am actually really bad at public speaking or speaking with authority figures. Aw... Yuki-shama. Don't bite...haha there is that little problem with the word "much" :P *come up and says hi*

I actually only got this job because I worked with the owner before as a gardener.

Well her dance teacher job was just cause she was good at it, but she actually went to school for that other stuff. Lulz @ scholarships... -.-; I actually did waaayy worse with her helping me study. >__>; Since I'd get so tired from running around and reciting other subjects.

>.> Trust me, I'm not the best person to look up to... maybe someone you could try using as a personal hurdle though... unless you mean that literally. I'm 5'9' without shoes, and close to 6ft with heels on. <__<;; I'm that really tall Asian kid with crappy balance... I actually have a stutter. .-. Had to see a speech therapist to get over it, still seeing said speech therapist though. :3

D/w, everyone has a problem with public speaking if they aren't used to doing it very often. When I attended university, we had to speak in front of the whole class, and normally I'd only mess up a good chunk of what it was I had to say, but since I was so nervous, I ended up messing the whole thing up. Lost my place several times, said the wrong words, switched from English to Japanese and then to Tagalog... I think I said a bit of French, too.

Oh, you really did have a lot of other jobs before this one. Oh she must be really talented to be able to teach dance and to get scholarships. You did worse...oh I thought you would be reciting the subject you are getting tested on...It's like me cramming the day before finals but falling asleep during the test. >< No no, looking up to you for your works and literally as well. wow 5'9 is pretty tall but bad balance makes it worse I guess...don't worry I have bad balance as well. When I play sports I get injured a lot. *sigh* public speaking and thinking on the spot isn't my strongest suit...I get so nervous that my eyes get blurry so I can't even read the notes I have...I guess that is a fault for knowing so many languages...Ah Yuki bite me...*sob in a corner, rubbing the bite mark*

Yes, I have had a lot of jobs... I started working at around... 10ish. <__< Just doing some small garden work stuff like that for a quick buck. Threw my earnings into a GIC with my birthday money and saved it. .-. I've been very money smart... since my one goal in life is to save up $1,000,000. It's possible you know... it just takes a lot of patience and penny pinching. It also requires you to start really young, and I've been saving since I was eight years old. 8D

My wife is actually extremely smart. In order for her to keep her scholarships she needed an average of at least 90% or higher.

Hm, I guess that'd be okay I guess... it'd kind of be like looking up to the underdog who's had to learn every thing from scratch since the Canadian public school system is equivalent to a steaming pile of poo.

Watching me play sports is like watching that final scene from V for Vendetta where that building got blown up in time with the music. Thinking on the spot is something I'm good at though. Most stories I've written were on the fly sort of things.

P.s - You're a vampire now. Go sparkle in the sunlight. Shing~ Sparkle, sparkle

Wow, that is quite young...I always put my birthday and red bags into the bank as well but my mom always says that I should use them as well, not just saving them...oh $1,000,000 that is quite possible. It's nice to see how you have goals in life already...I'm still searching other than writing one readable fanfic...Dang your wife is really, really smart! I'm very jealous...*sniff* I'm failing my classes and barely have any classes with an average of 90 or higher...oh don't be like that, looking up to you is something a lot of people are doing...I can't really comment on the Canadian system since I never been through it but I trust your words for it. Oh, I want to watch you play sports...*imagine the things blowing up* what sport exactly? I am bad at thinking at the spot, I've been practicing for this trial with me being the witness and all that happened was making a stuttering fool out of myself. A vampire? but it's night right now? There is no sun but it be cool to sparkle

Yes, 1m. That's my life's goal. But I don't know if I'll ever get to it though... >__> I had to use my savings to buy the car and the house, so lol still wishing and praying here. :] A life goal is meant to be started early in life, but personally, I think my life has been going super fast forwarded. Not that I mind of course.

She is very smart, she just doesn't act like it. Well, she doesn't act it, but she sure sounds like it. She likes to swear a lot,but she also likes to use big words. So whenever she's arguing with her sister, she'd like to say things like "STFU! You're being too prolix!" ._.; Throws the whole thing out of whack. I tried to copy her once and ended up saying "Omg you and your medulla oblongata gotta leave." but then I'd get pwned when wifey goes and says: "Haha~ lower half of the brain stem!"

@_@ Lots of people do look up to me. I'm too tall for my own good. v,v

Any sports will equal to that massive explosion. Only sport I was good at was basketball when I didn't trip over myself. 8D Taller than most of the Asian kids in highschool, but definitely not as talented in sports... >__>;

I'm sure you can make it to $1 mil even after the car and the house...you still have a full life before you. Haha, I haven't even started any life's goal...my seems to be going at slow mode. I'm jealous of her smartness. Oh your arguments sound so interesting but I too would be lost in her big words and scientific phrases. Haha, medulla oblongata, I remember that...I couldn't tell which part was which though so I sort of guessed it through the test. Aw it's okay, one day you can win over her. You're not that tall but it's good that people look up to you, literally as well. I'm 5'7 so close I guess. Any sports...wow. Basketball sounds like a good sport for you especially the height advantage and the none tripping part too. Oh I'm like middle of my class and I play badminton...so Asian :P

I probably can, but who knows... I might just scratch that goal and put that money into my kids' college funds and pray that they'll take after their mother and get a ton of scholarships so I can retire early. Lol, we're already discussing baby #4 jokingly (Oh god...), so I don't know how big the Hinamori family will get since wifey and I are both still pretty young.

Well for my ethnic group, I'm pretty tall. :B I was like Tokyo tower in Japan... but then I bumped into this 6'5' Japanese guy and felt uber short.

No, no... I trip in every sport. ._.; I just have really good aim, so I can do half court shots. XD I tried playing B-ball with Yumi once, I tried to act cool and do a dunk... ended up tripping and falling on my face while throwing the ball at Yumi and slamming it into the back of her head... <__<;; it still went into the hoop though.

I hated badminton... I kept hitting myself with my racket.

Story time~

LOL Okay, on the way home tonight, my right hand (wo)man, Yumi, and I were riding in the back seat of the lancer with one of my other employees sitting in the front with my wife. Now, my wife is only twenty-one, so she's still got a bit of party-life in left in her... the song "In My Head" by Jason Derulo started playing on the radio.

And this is what happened...
~*~

After a hard day’s work all Fate T. Harlaown wanted to do was get home, take a shot shower, say goodnight to her kids, and curl up next to her wife for a well deserved night of rest. What Fate had in mind was a very mundane thing, a very fitting agenda for a woman who had spent the whole day hunched over a small screen typing away an uncountable sum of numbers and words.

“Ya-ho, Fate-chan!” Hayate greeted with a weary grin on her cheery face. She had spent the whole night working with Fate and all she wanted to do was flop into bed and forget that she had work the very next day. “Day’s finally over, huh?”

“Yeah, you can say that again…” Fate replied with an exhausted sigh. “I just wanna go home and do nothing.”

“Amen to that one…”

“Um,” a timid voice squeaked behind Fate. “Are you sure it’s okay if I get a ride? I really don’t mind taking the bus or walking.”

Fate turned to the shy person speaking behind her and nodded her head in acknowledgment. “I don’t think Nanoha would mind giving you a ride, Tiana.” Fate said with a reassuring tone. “It’s my car, so what I say goes, right?”

“I guess so, but still, I don’t want to intrude…”

“Naaah,” Hayate waved her hand, “Just gotta be careful when you talk to Fate-chan though.”

“Huh,” Tiana quirked her eyebrow.

Hayate walked up to Fate and threw an arm around the taller girl’s shoulder, “Say the wrong thing to Fate-chan and you’ll be flying out the window.”

“U-Um…” Tiana stuttered, her eyes wide in fear. “Maybe I should take the bus after all…”

“Don’t wuss out now, Lanstar!” Fate growled playfully. “You’ve been around my wife, she’s not that bad.”

“She made the new girl cry!”

Hearing Tiana’s comment made Fate flinch and rethink her argument. “Well, she’s pretty to look at.” was the only excuse Fate could think of on the spot.
“That isn’t reassuring enough…”

Shrugging her shoulders, Fate patted Tiana on the head and said, “As long as you don’t get her started on something, you should be fine.”

“In other words, sit still, don’t make eye contact, and if you want to survive the car ride, don’t say a word.” Hayate added to clarify the situation. “If you do that, you’ll make it home in one piece.”

Honk Honk

“Aa, that’s my princess now!” Fate shouted eagerly, grabbing her backpack and practically running out the door. “Hayate, lock up before you leave!”

A pristine cherry-red ‘09 Mitsubishi Lancer rolled into the parking lot and slowed to a halt. The lights went out as the driver killed the engine and got out. Wearing a formfitting black tank top, white daisy-duke shorts, and an incredibly expensive brand of shoe (one that was so expensive it doesn’t even deserve a name), Nanoha got out of the car with a smug smirk on her face and a box of orange juice in her hand.
“Can’t believe you’re leaving work,” Nanoha said dryly as she took a sip from her juice box. “Why don’t you just live there?”

“Well for one, you’d starve to death without me, and two, you know I can’t live without you.” Fate replied coolly.

Quirking her eyebrow, Nanoha nodded her head slowly and continued to drink her orange juice. “There’s something called delivery~”

“Hey!” Fate shouted offended. “My cooking is waaay better than anything from delivery!”

Hayate chose this time to butt in and said, “Whether it’s Fate-chan’s cooking or delivery, it still beats Nanoha-chan burning the whole house down.” Nanoha shot a glare at Hayate, to which the younger brunette countered with, “I love you and all, but we all know it’s possible.”

“Unless you wanna walk home, I suggest you be very, very quiet.”

Hayate’s head sunk into her shoulders, “Yes, ma’am.”

Tossing her emptied juice box into a nearby trash can, Nanoha turned to the young girl who trembled behind Fate and asked, “What’s her problem?”

“You’re scaring her.” Fate replied dully.

“Wonderful.”

Tiana shivered from the cold look in Nanoha’s eyes. She was terrified to move and prayed that her shield wouldn’t walk away.

“Anyways,” Fate said. “We should get going now.”

Nanoha nodded her head and got back into the car and started it back up. Fate pulled open the back doors and slid inside along with Hayate who practically jumped in. Tiana on the other hand was a little hesitant. With the back seats by her two co-workers who had already made themselves at home, the only spot available was the front seat which had an evil aura around it.

“Are you getting in or what?” Nanoha snarled. Tiana nodded her head and eased herself into the seat, making sure not to get too close to the demon driver. “Seatbelts or else!”

“Ehh…?” both Hayate and Fate groaned.

“Just sit still and be quiet…” Tiana whispered to herself over and over in a silent mantra. “Sit still and be quiet…”

Peering over to the overly tense teenager, Nanoha said, “You aren’t doing a very good job of that are ya now?”

“No, ma’am!” Tiana quipped in terror.

With everyone buckled in, Nanoha carefully pulled out of the parking lot and lead the car onto the silent road; no other vehicles were insight other than the vaguely visible cars that were parked nearby. The only sound within the cherry-red Mitsubishi was Hayate’s quiet snoring and the static-y hum of the radio as Nanoha turned the knob to find her favourite station.

“Hey, hey, hey!” The radio DJ greeted with an over the top voice. “Thanks for tuning to TeamG radio, your local source for the epicly awesome and epicly hilarious!
Tonight, we’ve got a pretty silent evening. No traffic, no construction, no nothing! So go out and have a nice evening cruise—on second thought, a nice walk would be good too.”

“So, Tiana where do you live again?” Nanoha asked barely paying any attention to the teen huddling as close to the door as possible.

“I only live a block away from you and Fate-san, so I’ll just point the way.”

Nodding her head, Nanoha leaned into her seat and eased her shoulders. “If you don’t relax, I’m kicking you out of the car.”

“That doesn’t help the situation much, Nanoha…” Fate grumbled.

“Shaddap~”

“We’ve been getting a few calls for this song tonight, so a DJ has to do what a DJ has to do and play the song!” the announcer laughed. “Here ya go folks, ‘In My Head’ by Jason Derulo!”

“Oh my god, I love this song!” Nanoha squealed giddily as she cranked up the volume.
Fate found herself wishing she had brought earplugs or at least go deaf. She loved her wife’s singing voice, but tonight was just not for one of Nanoha’s epic karaoke… especially when it involved unfamiliar people and an awkward song.

“Just leave with me now. Say the word and well go, we can go.” Nanoha sang with a light bobbing of her head. “I’ll be your teacher; I’ll show you the ropes.” Tiana watched the older woman in horror with her jaw to the floor. “You’ll see a side of love you’ve never known. I can see it going down, going down.”

“Nanoha-chan, you’re pitchy!” Hayate mumbled half-asleep, but Nanoha paid no heed and continued to sing.

“In my head, I see you all over me. In my head, you fulfill my fantasy.” Tapping her fingers on the wheel and moving to the groove, Nanoha ignored the frightened stare Tiana sent her.

“Inappropriate words, inappropriate words!” Fate yelped now fully awake.

“In my head, you’ll be screaming no,” Nanoha flashed a cheeky grin at Fate and just sang louder. “In my head, it’s going down. In my head, it’s going down.”

Hayate patted Fate on the shoulder and grinned, “Hey, be glad she forgot about the CD with Rick Astley’s—oh no.”

Leaning her head back, Nanoha stared into the mirror and smiled devilishly at Hayate. “Thanks for the memo, darling~”

Fighting! For both your personal goal and college funds for you kids. You did say they are taking after a lot like your wife so they will probably get a lot of scholarships as well...and your wife can teach them too...and you can retire! Yeah you two are only a little older than me so yep still young...wow #4, your family has a lot of growth potential then...wow 6'5 that is really tall. Hm...maybe I'm average for my ethnic group...but I'm taller than my mom already so who knows. Wow half court shots, those shots my chances are like 25%...pretty low. Ouch that's got to hurt...poor Yumi as well. Is she scared for life? Fearing the attack of the orange ball? Dang, it still went in...that is pro! Haha, I hit myself as well so my left knee is always bruised during the season but I like smashing (at people) :P Congrats you finished the story! but wait, isn't it like 4ish there?

4:37am to be exact. The funny thing about me is that... the more I talk about my wifey, the stronger the inspiration. And I think I've mentioned her at least once or twice in each reply I gave to you... soo, chyeaa~ Anyways that story above what was happened in the car ride... and I don't think my employee will ever ride in my car with my wife around anymore. Too scary.

x_x My bad, it wasn't biology. It was History, Music and gym. Biology was just her hobby back in the day since it was the only subject I was passing in highschool. Come to think about it, I probably only passed gym because she forced me to. Lol

Yes #4... <_< Mostly because we've got that uber-genius 7year old and then FaLi (Fate and Alicia), so she's aiming for a Carim or a Hayate, I just hope she isn't trying for the entire MSLN cast. Also twins are hereditary in her family... x__x it's kind of scary really. She's got a twin herself and her little brother and sister are fraternal twins, her mother has a twin... and I've lost count at that point.

xYuki, leader of Team GEMINI and the harbinger of death and destruction. Yep, sounds right. 8D

---

4:44am now, so Imma head off to bed. >__> Got work in a few hours. I also got another interview today, so I'm hoping this person meets my expectations. :3

Night, night~ nice speaking with you again.

Wow that was an awesome story! Poor coworker of yours...yeah you must really love your wife, the inspiration of your life. A biology hobby wow, that is scary. Ha, I can imagine your wife whipping you into shape...look on the bright side...at least you passed the class. Wow, so #4 may turn out to be #4 and #5...maybe she could get both Hayate and Carim...poor wallet of yours:P The whole MSLN cast, wow, that is a blot...I would say go for your favorite characters first. I never knew twins genes can be hereditary...oh. Wow, that is like the most twins in a row I've ever seen. Haha, yep sounds about right. Dang 4:35 that is quite late, you should go home and rest before your wife gets upset.
